    No, the displays are about to be revamped.

    If you dont want one of the revamped ones, then the price on the old ones are going to drop like crazy.

    Who knows when the new displays are coming, but i think everyone can agree its soon.

    Nope nothing today it looks like. We would have usually seen new products by now today. Software updates come later in the day but we got those yesterday.

    They really need to update the displays. It been 336 days since the last one.

    And they need to drop the price. They cost a mint.

    Apple displays are just Samsung LCDs with a pretty case. Why not get one of those and save some money (then again they offer them for as low as $1458 for the 30" so that's a decent deal but retail is pretty high). The integrated USB and FW ports are nice though.

    They really didn't even update their displays then, just a price drop IIRC

    I just picked up an LG LCD Hi def 26" for about that much, and use a mini-DVI adapter and hdmi to dvi cable to connect it to my Macbook
    Works fine, and I don't have a monitor that is useless when the macbook isn't plugged in.
